People in Nottingham ‘would rather stay in’ after city centre incident

Some Nottingham residents admitted they would “rather stay in” after a violent incident in the city over the weekend. Nottinghamshire Police were called to Milton Street at around 3.45am on Sunday, June 26 following reports of a disturbance in the area.

Two men were taken to Queen’s Medical Centre after the incident – their injuries are not life-altering or life-threatening and the pair remain in hospital. Milton Street, Upper Parliament Street, Clumber Street and Clinton Street were all cordoned off on Sunday, raising concern amongst people in the city. Meanwhile, four men aged 19, 25, 28 and 31 were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.

On Monday morning, bars, shops and residents spoke about the impact incidents such as these have on the city. Jacob Page, 25, is the manager at Bodega and lives in Mansfield. He said: “It’s mainly the big clubs and around that area where the trade is more affected I think.

“It’s not affecting trade for us really, we actually had a really good week. Maybe the effects of the increasing crime will reflect on us in the future, because students will be too fearful. We do see a lot of police presence around our area but maybe the areas with most crime that are being neglected that need more supervision.”

Lutfullah Mashal, 23, a manager at B&G off licence in Goose Gate, said: “Not many people come in anymore, I dont know if it’s because of the crime or students going back over the summer but trade is surely affected. More police around the city should help.”

Meanwhile, some partygoers admitted they will take a longer route home just to avoid areas they deem as less safe – and admit incidents such as this “terrify” them. Rosie Hodges, 21, from Hyson Green, is a student at Nottingham Trent University. She told Nottinghamshire Live: “It doesn’t seem to stop, first it was the spiking and now the increased violence around town. I saw taping near Wilko’s at 10am when I was on my way to work the other day.

“It’s things like that that terrify me and my friends. My mates make sure I dont go home by myself after a nightout. We also avoid the places with a lot of crime and have to take a longer way home, which no one wants after a night out.”

Beth Crosby, 21, who is also student at the university, added: “I’ve stopped walking home and have to take an uber now because of the crime. which is more just inconvenient and has definitely put us off of going on a night out. I’d rather stay in and drink with the mates.”

Nadia Whittome, MP for Nottingham East, said after the attacks: “I was very concerned to hear about this serious incident, which has left two people hospitalised. If you were in the area that night and witnessed anything that might help the police in their enquiries, please contact them directly on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously.”

Speaking on Sunday [June 26] Detective Inspector James McDonagh of Nottinghamshire Police said: “A team of detectives is working incredibly hard to establish the circumstances of this incident and those inquiries are ongoing. As these arrests show, the force treats reports of violence extremely seriously and we will always take swift action to investigate and track down suspects.

“While we have made three arrests we would still like to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have CCTV, dash-cam or mobile phone footage which could assist us with our ongoing investigation.”

Anyone with any information is urged to call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 125 of 26 June 2022, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
